Public Divided Over Romney’s Vulture Capitalism Career

WTF???  Finally, more and more people are learning about Romney’s job-killing “career” as a vulture capitalist — and they’re “evenly divided” over it?!?

Anybody home???

“Oh, so you mean, Mitt Romney would take over a thriving company, fire most of the workers, drive the company into debt and then sell off the company’s assets?  Huh.   Oh, what do I think about this?  Uhh…I don’t know…”

P.T. Barnum had no idea how dumb future generations would become.  The “suckers” he referred to were geniuses compared to today’s legions of sheeple.

Like they say, we get the government we deserve.  But when millions of dummies are conned into voting against their own interests, we ALL suffer.  Unfortunately there’s no way to grab 150 million Americans by their lapels, shake them as hard as you can and yell “HELLO!!!”

It's early Tom. Just let Mitt speak more often and he'll talk about his amusing ancedotes of dad firing people and him liking to fire people.

Yeah. What Gr4ung said. People thought Mama Grifter was the sh*t too, as you recall. Willard, if anything, is actually polling worse than she did at a comparable timeframe.

how many more people are out of work since 2008? No need to do research because the people already know.
I guess if people like their situation then they will vote for Obama. Frankly I don't see alot of people liking their present situation all that much.

The public's evenly divided, most of the media are determined to be oh so fair and balanced, the deep pockets and fat fat wallets crowd is sending dump trucks full of money to super pacs that are sliming Obama and Democrats running for Congress 24/7.

Fox is doing what Fox always does.
And, I'll just bet CNN is showing many of those sliming videos umpteen times a day, every few days, presumably as news — wonderful free force multiplier for the radical right, compliments of their good friends in Atlanta.

All of which makes this a pretty typical presidential election year in which the Democratic candidate undergoes a process where his image and reputation are put through the political equivalent of a wood chipper.

yeah we shouldn't let Romney become president with a record like this
'SAT score over 1400, GPA of 3.97, with 4th year statistics analysis, math, economics, and management courses."
What was Obama's record? Learning how to dismantle the constituion, 'rabble rouser', and speech reader.

Comparing someone's academic achievements with what they do after graduation is pretty close to comparing apples and oranges. One sometimes has an effect on the other, but not always.

Romney may have all kinds of knowledge about economics, but how he chooses to put that knowledge to use is one of the main areas where I differ with him. His history has been one of destruction as much as it has been one of achievement.

People who think he will be better than Obama need to remember Romney's Massachusetts health plan is the one Obama largely modeled Affordable Health Care on. The health care stuff is what supposedly really got the "tea party" thing going in the first place, so the idea that people who would gladly embrace Romney just because is "isn't Obama" might want to think twice.

Romney says he will do a whole lot of things the "tea party" types want, but why would a moderate such as Romney suddenly veer so far to the political right? He is pandering, kowtowing, whatever you want to call it. Why? Because he doesn't care about average Americans. Why? Because 99+% of us are not at his socioeconomic level. He can't care about us, because he doesn't know.

He's a privileged rich-kid bullying type, who may try to portray himself as a man of empathy but who actually has none. AND he authored the health plan in Massachusetts.

Not to mention that approaches such as that of Paul Ryan will actually increase the deficit, not reduce it. There is no way to solve the problem without simultaneously decreasing spending and increasing revenue. This is why we need more Democrats in office, because they realize this.

Solving the debt problem has to be a shared sacrifice. GOP voters don't seem to look at it that way, as they seem to think all we have to do is cut social programs, period.

As Tom says... "HELLO?"

If Romney was a whiz in economics in college, he's either forgotten more than he ever knew or is more of a liar than I thought.

Grung, JR: Thanks you guys for the encouragement. I hope you're right that the more Willard talks, the less the public will like what they hear.

Judi: She keeps the place entertained and livened up :)

SW: You're right, the media is always "fair and balanced" when it comes to giving equal time to every rightwing hit piece.

Snave: As SW says in a later comment, if Romney excelled in business school, that makes his Far Right economic plans even more inexcusable. I'm still hoping that Romney's innumerable flipflops will turn voters off; make them realize he can't be trusted or believed.

SW: It comes down to whether Romney is dumb or a devious liar. I say the latter.

unlike President Transparent of course.Bain Capital used their own money and thanks to tax payer Money the CEO's of GM and Pontiac are raking in the bonuses.
f Romney supported Planned Parenthood you would probably hate them too.
By the way how's the stock market treating you these days?

The stock martket has always treated me much better when a Democrat has been in the White House. Same for millions of other Americans. Why is that, I wonder?

How has it treated you in the last 3 weeks. Funny how when the stock market did well under Bus it was the rich getting richer. Now what is it?

If people based how they felt on what the stock market does during a three-week period, few if any people would bother to invest.

Yes, my money took a nice dive when things crashed at the beginning of the recession, but since then I have not only gotten it all back but have made some substantial gains.

I suggest you re-evaluate how you invest your money, and maybe re-evaluate your apparent wish for me and tens of millions of other Americans to lose untold billions in the stock market. ;-)

After all, Republicans have to be hoping for another crash. It is about the only way they will be able to gain traction with their economic arguments. And if they can't win on the economy, what else can they possibly win on?

Romney’s weakness certainly is time at Bain Capital being a vulture capitalist even though he tries to play if off as a strength. I think come November people will realize that and they will associate negativity with Bain. Btw the Dark Knight Rises should help. Thought this website was funny. It says that Romney may be the Bane of Existence using a pun involving the villain Bane and Bain Capital.
